Bailey Street Kitchen reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Nice discovery

    We stumbled upon this restaurant in Whittier, while on a walk. We were pleasantly surprised by the service, food, and ambience. We both enjoyed our entrées, however the temperature could've been a little hotter on my veal Marsala. The mashed potatoes could use a little more flavor, otherwise everything was excellent. The desserts were perfect. Service was polite, friendly, enthusiastic.

  • Good Food. Bad Service & Atmosphere

    I came here for lunch, I was impressed by the food. The truffle fries & our salads were great. However, the atmosphere was extremely bazar. There was an asian looking fish tank with open wires in the middle of the restaurant, with cheap looking paintings / overall decor. The service was bad. There was no host in sight when we walked in the restaurant. Our waitress was strange- she acted bothered by any requests we made to our food which made us uncomfortable. When she brought us our check she said she couldn't find her pen and asked if we needed one or if we had our own. I literally laughed to myself- a waitress should always have a pen. Then she rang up our bill wrong making me late to a meeting. Overall, good food, bad everything else.

    Love my Bailey Street Kitchen. The food is excellent, service outstanding. This fun, family owned operation serving wonderful cuisine is a great neighborhood gem. Now they have wine and spirits. And a tempting/mouth watering special menu with incredible veal dishes and a nice array of pastas and other food items. You must try their wonderful food in a great atmosphere.

    Each time we dine at this wonderful establishment and partake in yet another delicacy, we walk away with yet many other recommendations. This restaurant is amazing and the food - from our salads, to the mushrooms, to the pasta, to the chicken were well prepared and served nicely. A most delightful experience.

  • The Mahi-mahi tasted fishy
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 8/31/2013
    The Mahi-mahi tasted fishy and was not seasoned well. From many of our past experiences with this fish, when it is fresh it is very mild, firm and not fishy. The hostess was very gracious and did not charge for it.

    I always plan a meal at the Bailey Street Kitchen whenever I know I will be in Whittier. I had a delicious Mexican beef dish that was flavorful. I must admit that the portion was huge and I made only a small dent in the portion. Don't miss the Asian Salmon Salad next time you visit. It is memorable and worth having on several occasions!

    The tortilla soup is fantastic. The salmon was crispy on the outside, tender and juicy in the middle. The portions are large. Try the restuarant; you will enjoy it.

    Images of restaurant on open table make one think this is a nice place -a neighborhood gem. Concrete floors, vinyl tabletops and bizarre decor. The entree was nicely plated with tasty food.

    Was a little disappointed. After all the favorable reviews was expecting more. The Provoleta was an overcooked, hot mess. The crispy onions just O.K. The Steaks were actually quite good. I had the skirt steak & my wife had the Rib-eye. Tasty & tender. Only available dessert was the Lava Cake. Not a fan. Our waitress had no idea what was on the menu nor how it was prepared. Will probably go back, but was hoping for so much more.

    Being from LA, I had no idea where to eat in Whittier. Open Table recommended Bailey Street Kitchen. Our party of three was held up in traffic and was late for our reservation, but the restaurant held our table for us anyway. We were pressed for time (our own fault), and let the waitress know. She expedited our order and had the check on our table when the food arrived. I had basic spaghetti and meat balls. It was excellent. The other two had chicken piccata and chicken marsala. Both love their selections. Everyone on the staff we had contact with was pleasant and knowledgeable. The restaurant is on a quaint little street in Whittier, perfect for a little walk before or after dining (if one has time). Overall, a great experience.

    Dined on 1/10/2013
    The food was pretty good, location and ambiance were also nice but I was disappointed to learn that they don't serve any alcohol. When I go out for a romantic Italian dinner, I like to have a glass of wine to pair with the dish. Since soda would be kind of gross to pair with a seafood pasta, I went with a coffee beverage. Italian restaurants are normally known for making great simple espresso beverages to have with dessert so I asked for a Cafe Au Lait (coffee with steamed milk). No one in the restaurant knew what I was talking about and I guess had no way of even heating up the milk. All they would have had to do was bring a little hot milk with the coffee. I didn't ask for any complicated syrups or cocktails.

    I was so impressed with the dinner at this restaurant, we returned for breakfast the next morning! Great menu and excellent service. A few employees even lined up at the exit to shake our hands goodbye. Definitely recommend if you are in uptown Whittier

    WHITTIER'S LITTLE GEM Ever since we found Baily Street kitchen, we have returned often -- for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We are always treated in a very courteous and professional manner. Food was outstanding! We hope they have great success in thier expansion, and hopefully the inclusion of a wine list.

    The food and service were excellent. The salmon salad was delicious, as was the pasta alfredo with chicken. The pasta was cooked perfectly. Tortilla soup came with the meal. It was the best tortilla soup I have ever had. It was too noisy for me, but both rooms were almost full. We had lunch and will be going back for dinner.

    The Bailey Street Kitchen is a neighborhood gem that you might find in other cities known for their great cuisine. It's become my favorite in Whittier, and compares with any wonderful bistro in Charleston, S. C., Chicago, or Seattle. They served a scrumptious French onion soup and a salmon salad that was "to die for!" The service was great and it was a treat for a late lunch. I'm looking forward to dining there tonight with a friend. I can't wait to see what the chef has in store! Bon Appetit!

  • The only place we had eaten
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 5/12/2012
    The only place we had eaten in Whittier when we attended the Shannon theater was the California Grill. I called and emailed for reservations but they never responded so we found Bailey's Street on Open Table. It was a VERY pleasant surprise. The pasta and salmon dishes, chicken piccata and tin foil steamed seafood and vegetables were all excellent. The three salads we tried were delicious also. The prices were very reasonable. The only problem is they serve no wine, beer or alcohol and do not allow you to bring your own. We will certainly be back next time we go to the Shannon.
